, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is talking about. this is a president who has done everything h
for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
to iraq. we had the same position before the withdrawal was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make shiewrp we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiation by president obama and they failed to get agreement. we don't have an agreement because they fail to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but, unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unravel other of the obama foreign policy which is making the more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd
's got to find some way to blunt it and he's got it make a stronger case fort obama administration and two, a stronger case against mitt romney than barak obama did last week. >> shep: is it your sense that this is turning on the national scale and it is in the big three on the east coast, but what's up with ohio? >> well, it's interesting. ohio -- actually a few states in the midwest. i don't think it's just ohio. wisconsin, look at iowa. part of it may be that it's the rust belt. certainly in the case of ohio is one out of eight jobs depends on the automobile industry and so people there remember the obama bailout of the auto industry and that helps a lot. there may be some regional differences. i don't think it's just one state. on the other hand, i do believe a rising tide lifts all boats. if romney starts to build support around the country, it will also increase in ohio and iowa and wisconsin states that are a little more resistance. conversely if he starts to sink, you'll see that in the swing states as well as the national polls. >> shep: sometimes it matters largely on how
case that the obama administration has brought us from the worst economic crisis we've faced since the great depression as a result of failed policies of the past forward 31 straight months of job growth and that we need to continue to have president obama and he in office so that they can continue to get the economy turned around and create jobs and move forward rather than what paul ryan and mitt romney have proposed, which is to take us back to policies that crashed our economy, that -- here's the bottom line. american voters the next 26 days will have a choice and joe biden will make this case. do we want to go back to a window of time like those under president clinton when we had the longest sustained prosperity as a result of middle class focused economic policies or do we want policies like those during the bush era that focused on tax breaks for the wealthiest and almost no regulation. i think the choice is clear. >> 9 hours, 30 minutes, you and i whether be watching along with most americans. thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. >>> it's a high stakes deba
what president obama didn't do, which is to defend the obama administration's policies from the past four years. i also think you're going to vice president biden go after ryan and romney for having really become a little more moderate in recent days. we're getting a preview of that and the xr and t and the campaign trail. we heard president obama preview that a little bit in his comments when he said that mitt romney has been running for the past year as someone who is extremely conservative and now he's trying to convince you, and i quote, that was extremely kidding. of course, his challenge is really tonight not to make one of those gaffes he has been called out for in the past and, of course, he's facing off against someone who is regarded as a formidable challenger. paul ryan is somebody who is steeped in the details. someone who is no stranger to having to debate things like budget proposals and that sort of thing. so i think people are prepared for this to be a pretty close debate. the latest pew poll had 40% of people saying that they expected paul ryan to win, 34% expecting
, has been suppressed. that is the vote on the obama administration. let's face it. if that were the same market under a reagan or a bush or even a clinton looking at a 20 or 25 multiple, we'd be trading at 2,000 or 2,500 in the s&p. we're looking right now at a situation where the weakness over the course of the last couple of days has been nothing more than protection being bought into the unknown which is the election, and that's -- >> that's ancillary weakness. >> i'll just repeat some of the things i said last night. i'm certainly no stock picker. leave that to my great pal, the brilliant jim cramer. all i'll say is in a romney victory i think the growth factor moves up to 4% growth in this country. i don't care about europe and china. i'm just saying in this country. they will probably follow. look, that means what? you start buying cyclicals, start buying industrials, start buying materials. you buy energy because romney is pro energy. you buy coal because romney is pro coal. you buy health care because romney won't nationalize the entire health care system. these are area
that comes out of the obama administration. it all has to be a fraud. it all has to be a fake. and i can only imagine -- >> let's go with michael on that. is there sim met tree between the far far left and the people like the birthers who have had a lot of support from the u.s. congress on the right? >> you also had members from congress during the bush year backing up and calling him certain thing. i don't buy into the conspiracy stuff. the reality is, look, you have to request yourself one question. you have 114,000 jobs created and 96,000 the month before and only goes down a tenth of a percent. what is behind the numbers? it's a legitimate number to ask. >> chris, come on -- >> explain the math. >> michael, this is the exact same agency that was reporting the numbers over 8% when mitt romney believed them so much that he wrote that into his stump speech. they have been believing these numbers, revisions and all, during the time that they were reported. the minute that one produces something that is not pleasing to them, it advances mitt romney's interests and these numbers. >> i think a p
happened and why and why the obama administration's quote initial public assessments of the attack were subsequently proven inaccurate. >> patti ann: nato special forces are putting some of the top police officers through elite training. this sort of training mission is key to plans for the 2014 withdrawal but it comes after green on blue attacks which afghan security forces opened fired on nato trainers. lieutenant colonel north is streaming live from hellman province in afghanistan. >> nato commanders maintain that these green on blue attacks have failed to drive a wedge between the united states and our allies that those special forces that are being trained, we want to see for ourselves. >> these are afghan special police at the nato training center here in the province. the hand picked police officers sent here for advanced training to master skills necessary to protect the afghan people from the taliban. training here is conducted by nato special operators and experienced american law officers. this year, 600 graduates will return to their units in hand-to-hand combat, fire qualif
this issue he would not have been acting responsibly. the notion that the obama administration is attacking him for that, i think is just political distraction at its worst. megyn: you talked about the situation in syria and how we have been note any absent from that conflict. talked about how when there was a push for revolution in iran back in 2009, the president did not answer the call. does not resonate with the american people? it's the thought is should we have gotten involved in iran, should we have gotten involved in syria on the heels of being involved in iraq and stan were does that rest late with americans -- does that resonate with americans? >> the power america projects around the world has a direct impact on our life at home. the image and presentation that obama makes is of a weak and inattentive president. this is the argument that it's american strength that's provocative. what happens is whether it's the assad regime in syria or the ayatollahs in tehran. they look at a weak and inattentive president and recalibrate their policies to take advantage that weakness. those are
administration. he says people will lose their job if obama is still in the white house. he's kind a character, actually. >> he seems like a little pressure to be saying that to his 7,000 employees. >> he says he won't fire them, but keep in mind that an obama presidency would be bad. >> he talked about the recession affecting his business and how he made it back. it is very detailed. >> christine romans, thank you very much. >>> when we come back, what not to wear at the airport. body armor for one. and that is just the start of what one man had with him when trying to board a flight. we have the full story coming up. e gether, and these come together, one thing you can depend on is that these will come together. delicious and wholesome. some combinations were just meant to be. tomato soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. tomato soup from campbell's. online outfit piccolo headphones buy now broadway show megapixels place to sleep little roadster war and peace deep sea diving ninja app hipster glasses 5% cash back sign up to get 5% everywhere online through december. only from d
think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's very hard to take out an incumbent. it's only happened at least republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't last time it's happened, when clinton took out bush. so it's curious, for example, that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night. the highest it's been since 1992, last time an incumbent was taken out. and i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama. but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all of the debates. and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everybody's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early. looking back i was reading back on your twitter feed last night and even back in febru
today, mr. romney wanted president obama saying the administration has neglected farmers and the agriculture industry and he neglected rural vote increase the heartland. listen. >> there are big differences between the president and me. he has no plan for rural america, no plan for agriculture. no plan for getting people back to work and i do. you know i spoke about it all over the country. i'm going to make sure i help the american farmer and i help the economy and get america work again. >> to that end today, mr. romney again said that he would eliminate the estate tax, the so-called death tax and went further as he has on occasion during this campaign to say that he would eliminate capital gains and interest in dividends taxes on the middle class. all in an attempt to spur the economy. shep. >> shep: carl, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million p
made that number vivid. he also, you know, again, not going to bash president obama again, but he did give a rationale for their administration and for the re-election, that they have a very different view of the role of government in creating the middle class, that we did it once before in the '30s, '40s, '50s, and '60s and we can do it again and the middle class just needs a fair shot. i felt that was the most heartfelt and emotional portions of his presentation, and i think that they're very effective. people are talking about his laughter, about you when you show those couple moments and you see his passion talking to people directly, i think it's so effective and devastating. paul ryan looks like an accountant whose numbers don't add up. >> michael, final opportunity for you, do you think mr. biden has stole the limited momentum that romney appeared to have last week? >> well, he at least changed the conversation. we're no longer talking about how barack obama is a terrible debater and may have given away the election a week ago which is good for barack obama. i don't know if thi
the american people would just look and see what happened with the the previous republican administration and look at all the things that the present republican nominee supported during the bush administration and get an idea of the things he will implement if he wins. now, president obama is trying to fix what the previous administration did. it does not happen overnight. in the process at, people want things right now, they want everything fixed immediately. that to the vice- presidential debate. caller: >> the vice-presidential debate definitely matters. i don't think vice-president biden should let them get away with anything. i am an independent. i have voted republican and i have voted democrat, but i don't think he should let them get away with anything, because the slightest thing he lets them get away with, the people with weak minds will vote that way. host: you brought up the past eight years. paul ryan at a recent campaign stop in new hampshire was talking about the threat of deficit spending. it's probably something you might hear tonight at the vice- presidential debate. her
